I do hope some of you will follow suit and set up a similar gig in your own community. Trust me, the faces of these people you restore hope in are simply priceless. You haven’t truly lived until you’ve done something for someone who can never repay you, and are perfectly content with that.
Let me just start by saying, the blogging community is second to none. You ladies never cease to amaze me when it comes to the support for causes I am so passionate about.
If you were around my corner of the internet during the holidays last year, you may recall my Blessings Bags for the homeless giveaway and how YOU helped me touch 150 lives? I’ve decided I want to make this an annual tradition!
No longer will you need to ask yourself: Do I hand him money? But then what will he spend it on? Do I drive through that McDonald’s and buy him some lunch instead? Are they even homeless? It always seems to leave you feeling guilty whether you give in to their pleadings or not.
My first thoughts were in asking friends to donate trial size toiletries. But, unfortunately, with all my blogging pals living across the country (& world), this would be difficult and costly to coordinate. So instead, this giveaway will help to gain donations to purchase items that go in the bag. In addition, I am pledging to match you guys dollar for dollar in what I spend on the items!
